I love outdoor living so much about it; it’s just so wonderful you know any moment I can be outside I am. So I have to tell you guys where are my portrait now and I hope this is something that you can apply to your life but a few years ago you know we live on our porch basically in the summer and I decide to need add a little bit more civilization to my part and I have kind o f chases for a while but never want to do I thought when I do you know I just kind to get some really classic chassis so I found this and I love how simple and elegant they are. But you know me I always have to add my twist to everything so I decided that my twist to be to add my own you know fun pillows and some pretty throws and I thought it anchor them with the beautiful antique rug, when it rains I just move it out of the way. But you know little twist like this really make a big difference on our porch. Now I have to tell you this is a great little point that you have anything like this because I know out of your friends are tends to be really, really classic it kind of ease what it is so you know see what’s out there and get what you are looking for and then turn it into your own thing. I have to say I ended up getting the first year I have some white chase cautious on mind I love everything about them you know the idea of it was so great to me but it was so bad news because of course you guys know you know four little boys and dirty Sandy feet and the big dogs and there is just a mess and so in cleaning them that was not working so next are I opted for some dark blue cautions and it is so great because you know of course dog here was help on that but so that is not a big deal in our room and you know all I have to do now is sort of wipe them down and they’re totally clean so that’s just one of really practical tips. But coming back to you know the idea of making a little space and whatever outdoor living you have, you know always as you guys know take a minute to add a few layers personalize it like I said add a little rug. A little pop of colors always so great too something alive a pretty basket was then roses or whatever you’ve got, I love the idea of the practical aspects of this too. You know for me a little throw is great because of course it will help me in a little nap which I think so love especially in this summer. I love having little auto mans nearby and the great thing about little auto mans is they’re plentiful in the market place and you know you can always find them of any price that you’re looking and in all kinds of textures that was really cool about them so I have this neat little sea grass auto man that we’ve had forever in this two pretty middle point auto mans and these two are my chance to add a little funkiness a little bohemian to this sport which is what I really wanted so you know I add it the leopard which— because you know the navy, navy is not really neat but it was so practical so I have to find my way of getting to me into it. I love that and then you know to bring other little pops of color into and you know this brilliant orange kind of art deco we trace so great with the peacock on it. You know always looking for little things like that. But the most important thing for me is that I come out to the space and it’s so great for sit down and has a cocktail together, I typically keep great tips of magazine nearby or kids books because this is one of our favorite places to read books to the boys. Each just another spot to foresee to slow down, sit down, enjoy the amazing spot you’ve created and enjoy the beauty of summer just so get all in.
